We are living in the era of so-called ‘conceptual art’, where often ideas take precedence over the object itself.

Learn how this has developed from the mid 19th century to the present day and discover how the most pressing themes of our time – from industrialisation and Cold War politics, through to genetic engineering and human rights – are represented in works of art.

Join Paul Hobson, Director of Modern Art Oxford, for a survey of some of the most influential and enduring themes and concerns, and understand how we use art to create meaning.
